This project is fortunate in having a small band of dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers. They are making slow but steady progress towards the creation of a ‘showpiece area’ adjacent to the graveyard entrance and to the rear of numbers 39 and 40 Chapel Street.
The refurbishment of the historic Saron gates is taking longer than was anticipated but we still hope to be able to refit these in the not too distant future.
FoS volunteers have been in the graveyard since last month’s Volunteer Day to carry out some routine maintenance. This has mainly involved weeding around some of the graves and on the retaining wall on the Tyntaldwyn Road boundary. This necessary work is ongoing. If you are interested in becoming involved in this worthwhile community project please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be holding the next Volunteer Day on 21st June. Details can be viewed in the What’s On section of this blog. You are warmly invited to attend.
Our volunteers have shown that considerable improvements can be made with very little outlay apart from their own toil. We do, however, need to obtain funding for urgently necessary structural work to take place, particularly on the collapsed retaining wall. Applications are being made to a number of potential funding providers.
We are always happy to add to our support. Whether or not you are able to help in a concrete way we will be very pleased to hear from you.
